Free Movie Screening

Timothy Leduc, author of Climate, Culture, Change will be participating in an upcoming screening and discussion of the award-winning documentary Climate Refugees. The documentary takes a look at the people displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters: the products of climate change.

Experts predict that instances of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, cyclones, fires and flooding will increase dramatically in the coming years. As areas are hit with these disasters, people will be forced to leave their homes and seek asylum in other parts of the world. It is thought that border conflicts and potentially even wars will be fought over these issues. For the first time ever, climate change is being considered a national security risk.

To learn more about these issues, please attend the free screening of 'Climate Refugees' which will be held at the University of Toronto Campus in the the JJR Macleod Auditorium on Friday, April 29 at 6:30 PM.

The screening will be following by a panel discussion with Timothy Leduc, author of Climate, Culture, Change; Laura Westra, author of Globalization, Violence and World Governance; and Alfredo Barahona, Program Coordinator, Migrant and Indigenous Rights, KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives, and Member of the World Council of Churches' Global Ecumenical Network on Migration.
